Technical Update: May 11, 2016

Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bug Fixes

  • A bug that could sometimes cause Forum and Message Wall posts to appear multiple times will be fixed.

Other Notable Changes

Detailed CSS updates can be found at - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.

  • A wiki-specific class will be added to the body tag, allowing users to easily target specific communities in their global CSS. It is based on the database name (wgDBname) of a community not the URL - these often match, but not always.
    • The format is: wiki-[database name]
    • Thanks for the Volunteer Developers for this addition!
  • The mobile skin will be updated to improve the layout at the top of article pages.
